the president was quoting john mccain never saying that the president was quoting somebody else in the first advertisement that they ran in this campaign. the vice president was cheer lee talking about the fact -- bill: it's not clear, it's not clear that he was talking about anything other than the fact that middle class americans have suffered tremendously over the past four years. and -- >> as a result of the economic crisis and the policies that led to the economic crisis. bill: hang on a second. i'll get to my question. you know americans have been struggling so hard over the past four years just to keep their heads above water. they are still swimming, but man they had to work hard for it. and what joe biden said is that the middle class has been crushed over the last four years. and the question then is, is that because of the policies of this administration? and the comment that he made, just a clear question here, was it a mistake next or no? >> read the next couple of sentences. the vice president attributes this to passing tax cuts for the wealthist, to stripping back oversight fr
